Need inspiration... here are a few Beatie & Mark created together...

And then what?

The postcards will become part of a ever evolving collective installation - art directed by Mark Mothersbaugh & Beatie Wolfe. Any post art received before Aug 2021 was displayed at the Rauschenberg Gallery.... but that's just the beginning

Shhh... its not yet official but here is an early peak of what is next

Hold on, I've got another question...

Q. What should be on the postcard?
A. Anything that you like, from a statement to a poem to a doodle to a design. And you don’t have to be an artist!

Q. Is this a non-profit?
A. Yes this is an art demonstration and if any profits are raised they’ll go to art/vote enrollment charities/initiatives.

Q. Is this open to the rest of the world?
A. Yes, anyone can do it.

Q. Can I still send cards after the election?
A. Yes, keep buying stamps and sending cards.

I'm in... what's that address again?
